Five students were expelled for adopting unfair means in the examinations

Some 5,447 candidates remained absent on the first day as the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examinations began yesterday. 

Besides, five students were expelled for adopting unfair means in the examinations, reports UNB.

A total 1,416,721 students sat for the examinations under nine general education boards at 2,122 exam centres across the country this year, according to the control room of the Secondary and Higher education Division under the Education Ministry. 

While inspecting an exam centre, Education Minister Dipu Moni urged political parties not to schedule programs amid the ongoing Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and its equivalent exams.

“During the public exams, the parties should not announce any program which will trouble the students,” she told journalists after visiting the exam centre at Tejgaon Government Girls’ School in Dhaka yesterday.

Moreover, she directed the concerned authorities to ensure that the admit cards are handed over to the students well before the upcoming exams.

She also warned of stern action against those who spread rumours about question paper leaks.

The written examinations will continue till February 27 while the practical tests will be held from February 29 to March 5.
